Maintain ornamental lighting at houses till November 12, says Yogi
VARANASI: Chief minister Yogi Adityanath has urged residents of Kashi to maintain decorative Diwali lighting at their houses till November 12, to give a grand welcome to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who will be in town to dedicate to the public development schemes worth about ₹2,500 crore.
Yogi made the appeal while reviewing preparations for PM Modi’s visit to Varanasi. He instructed municipal commissioner Nitin Bansal to get the dustbins installed off the roads so that the roads remain clean and there is no litter on them.
He instructed that the trees along the newly-constructed Varanasi-Babatpur four-lane road should be decorated. Special attention should be paid to cleanliness at the multi-modal terminal which has come up at an estimated cost of Rs 208 crore. The chief minister instructed officials that potable water supply pipeline at the Sansad Adarsh Gram villages should be examined and if there is a problem, it should be solved immediately so that there is no crisis of drinking water in villages.
He sought information about the construction of a building for ensuring education for homeless women and children. District magistrate Surendra Singh informed that after identifying the land for the building, a report has been sent to the government for approval.
Yogi also instructed the PWD engineer to complete the ongoing road projects in Varanasi. He asked the senior superintendent of police to put in place foolproof security arrangements for the PM’s visit.
